We are calling on the government to pass laws that protect our venues from noise complainers.

In 2014 laws were passed in Victoria to protect important music venues from being shut down by noise complaints,
basically stating that if you moved near a venue that was there before you moved in, you had no right to complain about the noise.
These laws were supported by Music Victoria, musos, venue owners and residents who understood the importance and cultural significance of their local pubs.
The Imperial Hotel is at the centre of Queer culture in Sydney, and has now been brought down by noise complaints. This is a familiar story in Sydney, The Annandale and The Hopetoun being prime examples.
Newtown was built around Artists, live music, Queer culture and alternative spaces. We can not let people shut us down, shut us up, and shut us out. Newtown is too good to lose.
